the new OEM honda filter is not as good as the previous version. There are numerous videos on which oil filters are good and bad on YouTube. From what I've gathered, go with a premium oil filter. I'm going with HAMP oil filters (JDM OEM filters made in USA).Would it be ok if I use 3rd party oil filter instead of OEM for example FRAM?
There's a video on YouTube comparing the 2 OEM Honda oil filters. I believe it's still the same manufacturer. Only the low grade Fram filters are bad, seems the higher end ones are good to go.I've never seen/heard this; wondering how recent is your information regarding who makes filters from Honda?
I purchased this from Amazon on 8/29/19 & I'm sure the OEM Honda filters get the job done, but after watching several of the Youtube vids, I have switched to Wix.I've never seen/heard this; wondering how recent is your information regarding who makes filters from Honda?
Seems like Wix, royal purple, and amsoil are constructed identically with the amount of holes up top and the metal back filter element. Seems like K&N, mobil1, and those alike are a good choice also.
Yea, very unfortunate.I stand corrected on the manufacturer of Honda OEM oil filters. According to my reliable contact at Honda.
He confirms that Honeywell does indeed make OEM oil filters for Honda.
With a wink he commented it probably could be traced back to a chinese supply source...
side note: this new forum format sucks that they removed the ability to enlarge and change color of text.
team3d sells them or if you google FKX racing. They seem to have them in stock.I've tried to find the HAMP filters, but it seems that no-one keeps them in stock.
I feel lucky to have found a seller of Honda PLM-15400-A01 filters (the old style made by FILTECH) on Amazon, so I ordered 10 of them (about $13.50US a piece) so hopefully that comes through. They are getting very hard to find now.
